The NFL concludes its preseason games this weekend with a preseason bye next week before the season opener. Clete Blakeman will have the final game on Sunday night in New Orleans.

The league office does not distribute the full list of assignments to officials, other than their own assignments. Therefore, some assignments were not available to us at the time of publication, which are shown as blank and will be updated.

All times are Eastern. Live games on NFL Network will be blacked out and telecast on local stations in both teams’ markets. (In some blackouts, a game scheduled to air on tape delay game will be aired live on NFL Network as a substitute game.) All games are available live on NFL+.

The 2023 officiating crews are listed here, but note that there may be substitutions from the regular crew personnel each week.
